Scots Trad Music Awards 'Up And Coming artist of the year', fiddle player Ryan Young brings new and exciting ideas to traditional Scottish music. He recorded his debut album with triple GRAMMY winner, Jesse Lewis, who has worked with the likes of Yo-Yo Ma and Bela Fleck.

Ryan holds both a first class honours and a Masters degree from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, as well as being a twice in finalist in both the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards and the BBC Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year.

Ryan launched his debut album at Feakle Traditional Music Festival in County Clare, Ireland where he was accompanied by renowned guitarist, Dennis Cahill (Martin Hayes; The Gloaming).

He was nominated for the Horizon Award at the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and was the winner of Folking.com's Best Musician for 2018.

Ryan focuses mainly on Scottish music, bringing new life to very old, often forgotten tunes by playing them in his own unique way. He is very influenced by the fiddle playing of County Clare,
Ireland and has been fascinated by the playing of renowned fiddlers such as Bobby Casey, Paddy Canny, PJ and Martin Hayes and Tommy Potts from Dublin.

Ryan's fiddle playing is brimming with fresh melodic ideas, an uplifting rhythmic drive and great depth of dynamics and precision.

Ryan's sound is very distinctive and he always manages to take the listener on an adventurous
and emotional journey in any performance

“…a force of nature” — The Scotsman

“Nuance, wit, risk-taking, contrast and above all a real sense of joy in making music were all there in abundance and Young’s solo feature, where he appeared to have been truly possessed by the melodies, was as exciting as it was uplifting” — The Herald

"...leading the 'New Wave' of traditional Scottish fiddlers, virtuoso Ryan Young" — BBC World
